What to Eat in Rome in Summer

What you should buy at the market in Rome in summertime

Food in Italy follows the seasons and summer brings a wealth of fresh produce to the markets of Rome. After the delicate greens of spring, vivid Mediterranean vegetables and ripe, succulent fruits are filled with the taste of sunshine. Italian summer recipes are light and simple to combat the high temperatures, and mean that you can happily indulge in some guilt-free gelato for dessert!

A Quick Guide to Italian Gelato

How to Spot Real Gelato in Rome

Gelato is a year-round indulgence in Rome, but with the rising summer temperatures, gelato season really kicks off and gelaterias seem to pop up on every corner of the city. Unfortunately, the majority of the city’s ice-cream shops serve a poor imitation of real Italian gelato, preferring to save time and increase profit by selling fake concoctions of powders, colorings and flavorings, as a opposed to the real deal made with fresh ingredients. But how do you know what is good and what is bad? Take a look at the Local Aromas handy guide to finding great gelato in Rome.
